5 Trends Behind Growing Brand Communities

The Big Game” is no longer what’s happening on T.V., but rather the struggle for attentiveness in a noisy world. And the brand that wins an unfair share of buzz and media attention during Super Bowl Sunday, might not even be one that has an ad. Traditionally, the Super Bowl has offered marketers a chance to drive sales, build brand affinity, and project a level of cultural relevancy. Yet, with declining game viewership and increased social follower counts of brands, the new reality is that a ...

Doctor My Eyes

It's confirmed at my latest appointment yesterday, my new eye has improved to 20/20! Still has a bit of astigmatism, which can be corrected with glasses. My other eye has gotten a little worse and will need the same treatment (partial cornea transplant, new lens implant) in a year or two. What a wondrous time we live in, when failing eyesight due to aging can be corrected with technology and surgery. I've also been impressed by the degree to which my brain merges the information fr...

Instagram Wipes Independent Developer's Work in the Name of Copyright Protections

Social media companies tend to take up copyright issues only when a) mitigating the pain in the ass of takedown notices and b) ensuring users keep reposting memes. Instagram has erred cautiously on the side of supporting potential infringers for the latter reason, so we found it curious when TorrentFreak reported that…Read more...

How Dubsmash revived itself as #2 to TikTok

Lip-syncing app Dubsmash was on the brink of death. After a brief moment of virality in 2015 alongside Vine (R.I.P), Dubsmash was bleeding users faster than it could recruit them. The app let you choose an audio track like a rap song or movie quote and shoot a video of you pretending to say the words. But there was nowhere in the app to post the videos. It was a creation tool like Hipstamatic, not a network like Instagram. There’s a reason we’re only using one of those today. So in 2017 Dubsm...

this was a good week

Despite global news really harshing my mellow, this week did have some good in it — and it feels extra important to name it. Here’s where it was:• On a personal front, my dad turned an incredibly healthy and vital 80 years old this week, I made huge progress on a work project, and I bought a zamioculcas zamiifolia plant that I named ZZ Top, for obvious reasons. She now sits in my office cleaning the air and apparently bri...

Considering the Crucifix in the Wild West

Part 1. The Intro   Buckle up. We’re going for a wild ride today. (But at my wife’s request, I’m going to keep it moving.) She liked that last week’s column was info-dense, but also clocked in at 1200 words, rather than the 2500 I was dropping with regularity in #2019. After all the time I spent hoping that 2020 would finally come, it’s hard to believe the year is already 1/12 done. And what does 2020 mean, anyway? Obviously, I know that years are sequential, but who decided to start at 0? We’...

How Instagram’s Removal of Like Counts Impacts Brands

As you may have seen, Instagram began testing removing like counts on posts last year and eventually rolled it out globally by the end of the year. They did this in hopes that it would help the mental health of users, as many people are consumed by how many likes their content gets and align it to their self-esteem. You can still see your own like count, but other people can’t see how many likes your content has. Some people can see if hundreds or thousands of others liked a post and others can’...

This App Allows You to Use Two Cameras on a Single iPhone At the Same Time

A boon for the mobile content creator: The FiLMiC Pro app has a clever multi-cam feature that allows you to exploit the multiple cameras on the iPhone XS/XR and 11. Now you can choose more than one camera and record video from them simultaneously--including from opposite faces of the camera, meaning you can record two-person face-to-face interviews.If that's all the app did, you'd still have to overlay those two videos in post-produciton. But FiLMiC Pro goes the extra mile by allowing you to cho...

Coffee culture is growing in the UK, with the World Coffee Portal noting that the sector has achieved 20 years of revenue growth.
